New York, New York
Power Outage Update: We spent the late morning in the generator-equipped town library where read and charged devices. Online sources said that the power outage in town had improved from 86% without power to 71%. About one o'clock we left to check out the house and eat some of the food in the refrigerator for lunch. We were amazed to find the lights on. Unlike the last three major power failures in recent years, for some reason this time we were among the earliest to get power back. So things are back to normal here, but a huge area across the Northeast is still without power and climbing out from under downed trees and power lines.
